    That is something that we cannot discuss here.

    See Item 12:

    However I think that it might be okay to mention this addon:

    I don't use my browsers' own options to clear cookies, I use CCleaner. That can clean cookies across all browsers at once and does have the option to create a whitelist of the sites who's cookies you want to keep.
    would just like to say that your solution works, by bookmarking all my favorite websites, they still show up as soon as i start typing, even after clearing my browsing history, and by whitelisting cookies from the same websites that i have bookmarked, i stay signed in, even after clearing my cookies.

    Above link details CCleaner conflict with Firefox 79.


    “Firefox 79, which will be released on July 28, includes changes to the storage.sync area. Items that extensions store in this area are automatically synced to all devices signed in to the same Firefox Account, similar to how Firefox Sync handles bookmarks and passwords. The storage.sync area has been ported to a new Rust-based implementation, allowing extension storage to share the same infrastructure and backend used by Firefox Sync.

    Extension data that had been stored locally in existing profiles will automatically migrate the first time an installed extension tries to access storage.sync data in Firefox 79. After the migration, the data will be stored locally in a new storage-sync2.sqlite file in the profile directory,” Firefox explained in early July.

    But as TechDows noticed, CCleaner doesn’t care about this change, so when cleaning local drives, it actually removes some of the files that are being used by this new Firefox feature.

    There’s obviously no way to bring them back, but you can actually prevent this from happening by just setting up an exclusion in CCleaner. To do this, head over to CCleaner > Options > Exclude > Add and create the following rule:


    Exclude1=PATH|%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\|*.sqlite-shm;*.sqlite-wal||0|0|24

    i found a way to prevent your saved logins from being cleared everytime you clear the cookies.
    you have to download this addon and manually whitelist the websites where you have your logins saved.
    its a bit of a hassle, but it works.
    i wish there was a more simple way of protecting your saved logins, though.

    Sign in to FF and it's all built in...

    Yes, but the logins are cleared everytime you clear your cookies, which i think you should do regularly.
